Author commentary

Veronica: For those that might be curious, Tess actually offered to carry the first aid kit that Lucy was preparing, though I’m sure you’re all wondering why the majority are coming unprepared for a hiking trip.

Paulo is so badass that he likes hanging off edges of a cliff. He is a master climber.

For a minute I thought Sue had a shield lol. On the last panel, if your mind is ruined by playing way too many rpg’s, it really does look like it.

I had a sudden though: If David was embarrassed earlier from lack of clothes, then what about everyone, all the other times? Is it a Global stripclub or something that doesn’t include the beach?

Wow. I think I play too much fantasy games. I thought that Tess’ hat was a shield for a sec there.

DUUDE Tess has a pierced tail? That’s… hardcore, man. Though if the muscle structure is like a normal cat, she should have crippled it…

The fourth panel it to funny. Everybody is freaking out about the walk around the cliff and McCain and Paulo are just walking perfectly around without a care. It’s just funny to look at their faces.

Sue looks good in this page, esp 1st panel.
McCain looks like a ghost in panel 2, no feet + flowing cloak.

Is Luce afraid of heights too?

Oh, DERP, Daisy isn’t there. I think that’s Sue.

Panel four is so cute cuz MikexLucy are holding hands.
Mike: Dont worry Lucy I’ll be there for u.
Lucy: Thx Mike, I didn’t tell anyone this…but*fainted on Mike*
Mike: Lucy! Why’d u look down, now I have to carry her the whole way.
Paulo: Carry her using ur arms not ur back, just so it’s easier to carry her
Mike: well, she’ll slap me if I do
Lucy: *asleep on mike’s back* ngh carry-me-please
Mike: Eeerr, o-okay L-Lucy >_<
after crossing she woke up on Mike’s arms
Lucy: augh M-Mike * huging him while he is carriying her*
Paulo: Hey Pansy! I think she wants u to carry her till we get to the hotel
Mike: o-okay I g-guess >_< well m-mabye she wants me to
Lucy: * Mike, I love u*
Mike: , eeeerr , Lucy, I think i love u too

oh wow >_<

And also, the first 9 panels look like what the comic’s paneling should have been. It looks better than the one line panels from before, and less anime-predictable than the paneling now. :/ sorry, my opinion here.

Tess looks a lot less naked when she’s wearing that hat. She should wear it all the time.

Also, it makes her look like that one girl from Digimon.

With all those panels, I’m thinking you could make some really sweet holiday montage with it. With Plumtree playing in the background 8-D 8-)

I never liked thins ledges and bridges, nor did I ever like being close to really high edges. I have a HUGE fear of heights. I would not have enjoyed this trip without acting like Lucy in panel 4. And then you have Paulo acting like he knows some secret technique by holding his hands BEHIND HIS BACK while walking on something so thin. And of course there’s McCain, who is walking it like one would walk on a normal sidewalk. HOW IS HE DOING THAT!? o_O
